The Victoria Inn


Its history spans nine centuries, so this striking pink-washed village inn could be Cornwall's oldest public house. Decorated with seafaring memorabilia, its typically Cornish stone-walled interior attracts families strolling up from Perran Sands and walkers from the South West Coastal Path. Real ales, lager and cider - all from Cornwall - enjoy pride of place in the wood-fire-warmed, softly lit bar; there is even a Cornish wine. After making your choice, take a menu outside to the Mediterranean-style patio garden if the weather is clement. Dishes are modern British in style, again making good use of locally sourced produce. Cornish crab with aïoli, herbs, gazpacho sauce and garlic croûtons makes a tasty starter. Continue the seafood theme with roasted Cornish megrim sole, new potatoes, cherry tomatoes, courgettes, anchovies and pesto sauce. A sample dessert would be white chocolate and mascarpone mousse, with chocolate crumble, Cornish raspberries and chocolate sorbet.
